Continued discussion of reinstating CE, which was abolished in 2009.





 LALB votes to procure three (3) quotes for videotaping its meetings and posting to its website.



LALB presents its Executive Director, Sandy Edmonds, with caviar.



To understand the meaning of the final video above, it's necessary to view the following two videos from or relating to the May 6, 2014 LALB Meeting.


LALB Chairman Tessa Steinkamp relays Executive Director Sandy Edmonds'
hourly rate of pay has been "irresponsibly manipulated" when represented as over $30/hour.  LAPA's
Vice President, Robert Burns, explains that, if that's the case, it's Legislative Auditor
Daryl Purpera who has been "irresponsible."  Note:  The above discussion
was part of a presentation to provide Ms. Edmonds with yet another pay raise
notwithstanding this damming report on LALB & IDB payroll practices in which
the LALB is said to be paying Ms. Edmonds while she "performs no public purpose."

July 15, 2014 (special addendum):


In an obvious flaunting of the Inspector General report of 12/9/13 outlining problematic payroll practices
as well as LAPA Vice President Robert Burns statement on the May 6, 2014 video below
(beginning at 1:47 mark) wherein he said, "I have no doubt that, if Ms. Edmonds said she wants caviar
 delivered to her home on Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m., the LALB would seek a vendor to deliver
 caviar to her home at 3:00 p.m.,"
the LALB presented Ms. Edmond with caviar right after the conclusion of the meeting to, as
LAA President Wiley Collins said, "save the 3 o'clock delivery."
